Musical (1935)


Musique: Michel Haijos
Paroles: Reginald Fogwell
Livret: Reginald Fogwell
Production à la création:

The heroine Kriska lives under the guardianship of the genial old Nicholas. Romance comes when she falls in love with the supposed gypsy Carol, who turns out to be as immeasurably wealthy as he is immeasurably romantic.

Despite comic relief from a character called Max, and lavish scenes round gypsy camp-fires, and glittering ballrooms filled with glamorous waltzing couples, this was a dreadful, over-blown flop: 3 representations!

Commentaires longs: Reginald Fogwell was an established film director and a writer of screenplays - his most recent film had been “Two Hearts in Waltz Time” with Carl Brisson and Frances Day. However, he managed to misjudge this show completely, which opened on a Tuesday and failed to finish the week.
